What is the role of eNodeB in LTE?

Hello dears,

What is the role of eNodeB in LTE?
What are main activities?

Hello @rafaeldamasio,

The eNodeB is a part of the E-UTRAN radio access network and is the component that allows UEs to connect to the LTE network. An eNodeB typically communicates with the UE, with other eNodeBs, and with the EPC through various interfaces: the Uu, X2 and S1.

The eNodeB performs the following functions:
· Radio resource management
· Routing of user plane packets towards the S-GW
· MME selection
· Packet compression and ciphering
· Message scheduling and transmission
· Measurement and Measurement reporting configuration for mobility and scheduling.
